Concorde Battery Corporation - Profile
Concorde Battery Corporation is a manufacturer of premium quality lead-acid batteries.
The present product lines include valve regulated (sealed) lead-acid batteries
(VRB) for aircraft, marine, medical, telecommunications, emergency backup, and
photovoltaic applications as well as flooded lead-acid batteries for commercial
and military aircraft.
Since 1979 Concorde Battery Corporation has manufactured aircraft batteries
and batteries for shipboard use by the U.S. Military. Concorde Battery
Corporation has provided the Department of Defense with over 150,000
military batteries manufactured to rigid quality requirements. Concorde
Batteries have been adopted by worldwide militaries including Canadian,
British, Australian and Italian air forces.
Concorde's manufacturing facility is AS9100 and ISO 9001 certified and is fully qualified under the FAA Parts Manufacturing Approval (PMA) process and manufactures a full line of batteries for commercial aviation. Original equipment batteries are supplied to Adam Aircraft, American Champion, American Eurocopter, Aviat, Bombardier / Learjet, Cessna, Columbia, Commander Aircraft, Dassault, Diamond, Enstrom Helicopter, Erickson Air Crane, Extra, Gippsland, Grobe, Gulfstream, Hawker Beechcraft, JetPROP, Liberty Aerospace, Maule, Micco, Mooney, Pilatus, Piper Aircraft, Robinson Helicopter, Scaled Composites, Schweizer, Seawind, Sino Swearingen, Slingsby Aviation, SOCATA, Twin Commander, Van's, Zlin, and other airframe manufacturers. The replacement market is supplied through distributors located in the United States, Canada, Europe and the Pacific Rim.
The valve regulated aircraft battery provides the customer with a no maintenance,
non-spillable, high reliability product designed to replace existing nickel-cadmium
and lead-acid designs. They have been adopted in aircraft such as the Learjet,
Citation, F/A-18, F-117A (Stealth), and C-130. In many of these applications,
the VRB is a direct replacement for maintenance intensive, expensive nickel-cadmium
batteries. The valve regulated design offers the user a tremendous improvement
over flooded lead-acid in the areas of vibration resistance, shock resistance,
and cold temperature performance.
Concorde valve regulated batteries of the Lifeline, Chairman, Reliant and Sun
Xtender series are designed for the marine, electric wheelchair, standby power
and photovoltaic industries. These battery types incorporate many of the same
design and quality features contained in our aircraft batteries.
Concorde is committed to the proposition that the customer deserves the best
performing and highest quality product. Our batteries are tailored to the application
rather than make the designer settle for what is available. It is this commitment
- to meet the needs of the customer - that sets Concorde apart.
The People -
People are the most important ingredient in the success of a company, and we
are extremely fortunate to have many talented and experienced people under one
roof. The management group at Concorde represents over one hundred fifty years
of battery manufacturing experience. Our President, Research and Development,
Engineering, Manufacturing, Quality Assurance, Marketing and Sales personnel
are knowledgeable, friendly, and ready to meet any challenge for superior battery
It is our belief that there is a growing need for special purpose sealed lead-acid
batteries in such areas as inertial navigation systems, stand-by emergency lighting,
cable television, computer back-up, and motive power to mention a few. To manufacture
quality VRB batteries requires exacting knowledge, expertise, and a commitment
to quality needed in few segments of the battery industry. Concorde has the
knowledge, skill, people and desire to produce the finest quality batteries.
Concorde's research and development in the valve regulated lead-acid battery
continues to bring considerable interest from military, marine, UPS, motive
power and medical equipment manufacturers and users. Continued effort from every
level of management has contributed to our growth and success.
and Facilities -
Our growth has required us to greatly increase our manufacturing facilities
and employ additional personnel. Concorde Battery's manufacturing facilities
and offices are located on 4.32 acres at 2009 San Bernardino Road in West Covina, CA located just 30 minutes
east of downtown Los Angeles. All phases of the manufacturing, engineering,
quality assurance, marketing, and administration are performed at this location.
